When I graduated high school, I went to Northeast Louisiana
State College on a little scholarship.
Immediately, when I moved into the dormitory, I knew it was
I felt UNsettled!
Later, I joined the USAF, and went to Lackland AFB for
Again, it was NOT “home”!
Then, Keesler AFB for more training.
Then, Clark AFB in the Philippines.
Then Barksdale AFB.
Ann & I bought a house there.
After leaving the USAF, I went to work for
Safeway Stores, Inc.
We moved 28 times in 15 years!
But EVERY PLACE was “home”!
What was the difference?
I KNEW that I had a “home” with “family!”
4 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our
Lord Jesus Christ,
15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
LIGHT from the WORD.
Sadly, most of the people of the world today live without the
solidity of family.
Tremendous numbers of children are reared in broken families.
But people CAN have a "family" in Jesus!
Notice the Scripture above.
Paul does not say “families," but "family"!
All who are truly "in Christ" are ONE!
Each Christian derives our personal status from Christ Himself.
And, the local church provides the atmosphere for a family in Christ.
Yes, we’re all DIFFERENT!
But we are members of Christ’s “body.”
We are the FAMILY of God on earth!
Do YOU have a place in which you are SETTLED?
You CAN have that place in the local church!
If you are truly "in Christ," you are a member of
His "family" through a local church!
Make it a HAPPY place!
Make it a place of LOVE!
Christian, your FAMILY awaits your being SETTLED!
